Is TUI under- or over-valued?

Valuing TUI stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TUI's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

TUI's P/E ratio

TUI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, TUI shares trade at around 5x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

However, TUI's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the travel services industry or those of similar companies.

TUI's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like TUI.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

TUI's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 26.88

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and TUI's overall score of 26.88 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 37th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like TUI is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

To gain some more context, you can compare TUI's total ESG risk score against those of similar companies.

TUI's environmental score

Environmental score: 13.66/100

TUI's environmental score of 13.66 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that TUI is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

TUI's social score

Social score: 15.26/100

TUI's social score of 15.26 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that TUI is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

TUI's governance score

Governance score: 9.45/100

TUI's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that TUI is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

TUI's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, TUI scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that TUI has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Wondering how that compares? Below are the controversy scores of similar companies.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

TUI AG was last rated for ESG on: 2020-10-01.

Total ESG score 26.88

TUI share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 98.63% of net profits

Recently TUI has paid out, on average, around 98.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 16.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TUI shareholders could enjoy a 16.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TUI's case, that would currently equate to about 0.45p per share.

TUI's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

TUI's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

TUI share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TUI's shares have ranged in value from as little as 218p up to 1090p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TUI.LSE volatility(beta: 1.7)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (LSE average) beta is 1, while TUI's is 1.697. This would suggest that TUI's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

To put TUI's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
